Sail and Swan also make Wooden Invitations and Stationery. Yes, they are real Wooden Invitations and they are beautiful to look at and touch! Due to this natural element each invitation has its own unique wood grain pattern and some even have ‘knots’. You can choose from the designs you see below or get a custom design made. Wooden Invitations are also thin and lightweight which makes for practical postage. No more stamps are required than a paper item of the same size! This is also the most eco friendly option you could choose and a new tree gets planted with every order! So rest assured and know that you are doing your bit for the environment.
There are two wood types to choose from – a Cherry colour and a Tan colour. The Cherry colour is a bit darker and shows the wooden texture beautifully. The Tan colour is quite light and takes colours a bit better than the Cherry colour does. The important thing to remember with wood is that it does change ink colours considerably. Usually colour printing turns out a bit darker and the colours can have quite a faded look to them. Some people love this look, but often I recommend just using black in your design as it leaves the wood as the hero of the invite!
